Description from manager

Ah, Portofino! If you have always dreamed of having an "Enchanted April" experience, this just might be the place for you. This holiday villa for rent near Portofino, with its stunning views of the sea, is ideal for a large family. This private villa has been integrated into the cliffs overlooking the sea and has its own private access to the water. Staying at this villa does mean bringing a comfortable pair of walking shoes – the villa is only reachable by foot from the road to the property, and there are several levels within the property. The charming village of Portofino is within reach by foot (only), and you must be ready for some physical exercise!

(2000 m2) Nestled into the face of a cliff, this unique villa has stunning sea vistas. Because of its location, the villa is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties. In order to get to the villa, guests must walk down 32 steps from the entrance gate. Beginning at the highest point of the property (the solarium) to the private swimming platform on the sea, there are 180 steps. Guests are sure to enjoy the large patio, shaded by a century-old wisteria, a garden area and the several terraced outlooks. From the villa to the panoramic solarium there are 23 steps. A private elevator (for the residents of the area) is located 300 meters away on a pedestrian road which connects the villa to a light house and the Portofino harbor. Please do not bring a car. There is no parking at or near the house.

<p>Upper Level: After walking down the 32 steps from the entrance gate, the front door of the villa opens into a living room with several white sofas and sliding French doors that open onto the patio.

About the area

<p>This villa is located within walking distance of Portofino, a charming village in the region of Liguria (the Italian Riviera) along the Mediterranean coast of Italy. This villa is located on the pedestrian road leading to the lighthouse - near the harbor of Portofino. A 15 minute walk from the villa takes you to its harbor of chic yachts, colorful boats, seafood restaurants and fashionable shops. Portofino is well connected with ferries, bus and train stations making for convenient day trips to Santa Margherita Ligure, Rapallo, Genova and the Cinque Terre. A bus can take you from Portofino into Santa Margherita (with a train station that goes to the Cinque Terre) or Rapallo. The coastal town of Rapallo has been a well known resort since the 19th century. There are many restaurants, cafes, bars, and nightlife activities nearby. The Rapallo train station can take you to Genoa, Milan, Pisa and Rome. Ferries depart from Rapallo for Portofino, Santa Margherita and the Cinque Terre. Ideal for a day trip, Genoa, purported birthplace of Christopher Columbus, is recently experiencing a revival in popularity. UNESCO has added the city to its list of World Heritage Sites because of its numerous palazzi. There is also a cathedral, the second-largest aquarium in the world, and an opera house. Genoa is the closest city with an airport. </p> <p>Nearby Attractions: Portofino (harbor, restaurants, shops, ferry, bus, train), Santa Margherita (train), Repallo (restaurants, cafes, bars, ferry), Genoa (Christopher Columbus, palazzo, cathedral, aquarium, opera house), Cinque Terre.</p> Florence: 216 km/134 mi
